PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

Forgot unlock pattern for my samsung galexy prevail


if you forgot the unlock pattern you can just click the forgot pattern option on the bottom of the screen. Just get the pattern wrong 5 times and wait 30 seconds and the button should appear. Once you press the button you will be taken to a screen where you can input the google account associated with the phone. It will unlock the phone for you if you know the google account username and password. Otherwise you're gonna have to do a hard reset on the phone. This will factory reset the phone.

If you have forgotten the screen unlock pattern, you have up to five attempts to try and unlock your phone. If this fails, you can unlock HTC Inspire 4G by entering your Google Account user name and password.
  1. On the unlock screen, attempt to enter your unlock pattern five times.
  2. When prompted to wait for 30 seconds, tap OK.
  3. If the display goes off, press the POWER button to turn the display back on, and then press the bar on the lock screen and slide your finger down to unlock the screen.
  4. Tap the Forgot Pattern button in the lower right corner when it appears.
  5. Enter your Google Account name and password, and then tap Sign in.
You are then prompted to create a new screen unlock pattern. If you no longer want to use a screen unlock pattern to secure your phone, tap Cancel.
Follow that instruction step by step and if you success you get your HTC unlocked, remember read that instruction carefully, if you did wrong step you will not allowed to enter your google account.

My son had my phone and somehow put a pattern lock, is there anyway you can tell me how to reset it, or unlock it?


Your's is an Android mobile phone I believe.

For Andorids with the Pattern lock, if you try the wrong pattern 5 times, you are given the option to use your Gmail account to unlock and reset your Android device unlock pattern.

Once you get the prompt for the Gmail login, use the account that you have set up in your Android device. This would take you to the option of resetting the unlock pattern.

Please note that if you have set up the 2-step-verification for Google accounts, your password will not be the regular Gmail password. You'll have to generate the authorizing password here: https://www.google.com/accounts/IssuedAuthSubTokens

Hope it helps. If so, please consider rating this solution.

Get your account password wrong 5 times and it will ask you if you forgot your password at the bottom. Then it gives you the opportunity to unlock your phone using your Google account credentials.
